Cameron BolinMr. John WhickerEnglish 151March 2, 2012Annotative BibliographyThroughout the history of language and literacy, writers have progressed and adapted to thenewest or latest version of literacy technology that was available to them. The debate over whether ornot technologies change how, where, why, and how much people write is nearly split down the middlewith evidence supporting both views. This argument is mainly based on the newest technologies, suchas computers, but I plan to show how the transformation from pens to computers has affected writers,plus many other technology changes. In this paper, I want to address this issue and give my own opinionon it.

In his article, From Pencils to Pixels: The Stages of Literacy Technologies, Dennis Baron argues thepossibility of computers making us lazy, rather than expanding our knowledge about writing andreading. He describes the main stages of new technologies and the impacts they have on they have hadon the literacy of our generation. He also says that the original writing instrument, the pencil, is notmuch different than computers. I plan on using this article to prove that the newer technologies, such ascomputers, have not caused people to write grammatically incorrect. I want to show how each writingtechnology, ranging from pencils, to ink pens, to typewriters; to the computers we have today have eachtaken time for us to establish them and understand how we can write more with them.
Bertram, Bruce. "Critical Issues, Literacy Technologies: What Stance Should We Take?."
 Journal of Literacy Research
. 29.2 (1997): 289-309. Print.In his article,
Literacy Technologies: What Stance Should We Take? 
, Bruce Bertram introduces the wordtechnology at the beginning of his texts and he evaluates the use of literacy technologies. He takesseveral different standpoints and provides reasoning for each category. They include neutrality,opposition, utilitarian, skeptical, transformational, and aesthetic. He argues that technology is a part of writing now and is imbedded with our beliefs and values; therefore technology does not opposeanything from literacy. I am going to use this texts to show several different views regarding myargument and show how technology needs to be accepted as the new form of our everyday writing.3.
Bromley, Karen. “Picture a World Without Pens, Pencils, and Paper: The Unanticipated Future of 
g and Writing.”
 Journal of College Reading and Writing
, 41.1 (Fall 2010): 97-108, Print.In her article,
Picture a World Without Pens, Pencils, and Paper: The Unanticipated Future of Readingand Writing
, Karen Bromley argues that the future of writing and reading will involve mainly speech
instead of actual writing. She starts out by giving a short history of writing and how we have evolved ourforms of writing from the pen, pencil, and paper to the new forms of electronic reading and writing. Shebelieves
that “pens, pencils and papers will soon be artifacts of the past, electronic reading and writingwill be pervasive, collaborative, and social events, and speech will replace most writing.” I want to
incorporate some of the history of writing and reading into the beginning of my paper and expand on it.
I’m probably not going to use this article to help prove whether or not writing technologies have
hindered or helped us as writers, but in a way that provides some history.4.
Haas, Christina. "On the Relationship Between Old and New Technologies."
Computers and Composition
. 16.2 (1999): 209-228. Print.
In her article, “On the Relationship Between Old and New Technologies, Christina Haas argues the
different opinions of the relationship between old and new literacy technologies. She comes to theconclusion that old and new technologies exist together, such as pens and computers, and they impacteach other. Both old and new literacy technologies were designed for the same purposes and they haveprogressively helped writing become easier for us to do. I want to use points from this article to helpshow that technologies will continue to help us as writers and they do not cause us to become poorerwriters. This text will help me show the relationship between all of the literacy technologies that havebeen invented throughout the years.5.
Hartley, James, Michael Howe, and Wilbert McKeachie. "Writing Through Time: Longitudinal Studiesof the Effects of New Technology on Writing."
British Journal Of Educational Technology 
32.2(2001): 141-151. 1 Mar. 2012. Web.In their article,
Writing Through Time: Longitudinal Studies of the Effects of New Technology on Writing
,Hartley, Howe, and McKeachie
debate whether or not people’s styles of writing and ways of thinking
change when new technologies are invented. Over the thirty year span, the three came to theconclusion that their writing styles were surprisingly consistent, even though they used whichever newtechnology was popular at that time. I want to use some of the statistics in this article to show that yearafter year some new writing utensil is invented; however we still have similar literacy skills. So writerscontinue to work differently from decade to decade, whether it is with a pen, typewriter, or online blog,but their final products are relatively the same.6.
Hawisher, Gail E. and Selfe, Cynthia L.
“The Rhetoric of Technology and the Electronic Writing Class.”
 College of Composition and Communication,
Vol 42, No.1(Feb., 1991), pp.55-65. Print.In their article,
The Rhetoric of Technology and the Electronic Writing Class
, Hawisher and Selfe attemptto show the positive and negative effects of incorporating computers into classrooms. They argue thatcomputers give students a more interesting way of writing and how people actually find some interest intheir literacy skills when technology is involved. I want to use this article to prove my point that not alladvancements in technologies have caused students to write poorer. With progressions in technologies,such as overheads, students become more involved with classroom discussions and it gives them moredesire to write.
